In addition to using course books, teachers engage their students via a variety of authentic, interesting and topical materials and activities.

Frequently Asked Questions 

How do you determine my English level?
On your first day, you’ll take a test to assess your English level. We’ll discuss the results with you, including details about your class and when it starts.

How long should I enrol in the course?
You can study for any period from 1 to 44 weeks. For significant improvement, we suggest a minimum of 12 weeks, as this typically leads to advancing one full level. Remember, practising outside class and using English instead of your native language will also boost your progress.

What’s the class size?
Minimum class size is 2 and maximum is 12. Usually between 6 and 11 students

How will you track my progress?
Our Academic Manager conducts regular tests and tracks your results to monitor your improvement. You’ll have meetings with the Academic Manager/Assistant every four weeks. 

Can I move to a different level during my course?
Yes, if you feel ready to move up a level, discuss it with our Academic Manager. We will review your test scores and possibly conduct a ‘level up’ test to ensure you’re prepared for the next step.

What will I achieve by the end of my course?
You will find communicating in English easier, whether in everyday situations, for work, study, or travel. Expect to speak, listen, read, and write more fluently and accurately, with improved vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation.
